Why is our generation not marrying?

A new survey carried out in the US by the Pew Research Center has found that this generation is different to those that went before in that we are not marrying.

In a survey of 1, 821 Millennials between the ages of 18-33, it was found that only 26% of them were married.

However it doesn’t mean we’re getting cold-hearted, just more sensible it would seem!

It was found that “most unmarried Millenials (69%)” DO want to get married but were held back by “a solid economic foundation”.

The survey also found that as a generation we are less linked to organised politics or religion and linked more to each other through social media.

We are also: “burdened by debt, distrustful of people, in no rush to marry – and optimistic about the future.”

So we have that going for us, which is nice.
